This is referred to as the ‘Flagship' property for Thousand Trails. If this is your first review you are reading from us, I encourage you to read more so you understand what is important to us in a campground. This is the worst campground we have been to as part of the Thousand Trails program.
Upon checkin, staff informed us that we are no allowed to use a ‘cheater' (50amp -> 30amp adapter) and that we are only allowed to camp in a 50amp site. Oh, and by the way, we charge extra for those each night. So after 4 hours on the road, what are you going to do? Leave? Ok, fine.
Next, we were told that we had to unhook our tow car and drive the property in our tow car instead of the RV to find a site to park in. We followed the rules and found a spot we thought would be acceptable, although most spots were very unlevel. You can see in the picture that to get level, the front tires were off the ground and the tow hitch was just about 2 inches from digging into the dirt.
Keep in mind that these are ‘remodeled' sites and are 100% complete. So next we went to check out the main lodge, restaurant, exercise room and pool. Everything but the pool was closed due to remodeling. The restaurant, main lodge and laundry room were all closed.
Nearly all sites have no shade, are very much on top of one another and are generally not very nice. The roads are awful and what it seems they are pushing are their tiny home communities, which are clearly getting all of the attention and money. Lastly, I can't continue without mentioning that the park ranger is not a nice person. We witnessed arguments with campers, horrid language and a general bad attitude.
We left 3 days later as soon as we rested up and found somewhere else to go. Upon leaving, there is no lane for RV's to checkout, so we pulled up to the gate (where we had to pay) and staff was very irritated that we were blocking the road. I said “Where do you want me to go? There is no lane to checkout”. I was told that I should have made a special trip to the office to pay prior to leaving. Is that really my responsibility? I don't think so and we will never go back to this campground and will not ever recommend that anyone else give this campground any funds.
